Organic Sports Bra (Shibori)
While many companies are now using organic cotton for active wear, most still heavily rely on petroleum products for synthetic dyes, thread and elastic. We love natural, breathable clothing, and we hate itchy seams, not to mention things bad for the environment, so we set out to make the first 100% natural sports bra. After a year of researching and designing, we created a sports bra having a fun, modern silhouette without the dependence on synthetic fabrics or trims. Made with 100% organic cotton fabric and trim and natural rubber elastic, our sports bra is available in undyed white, undyed colorgrown organic cotton (yes, cotton grows in color!) and organic plant dyes.
Ethically designed and manufactured in Los Angeles.

Unlike industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, this sports bra is dyed with organic indigo leaves.
Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline - a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel.
Ethically made all the way through.
Sustain makes sure every company involved in the supply chain is ethical and provides fair wages and safe working conditions.
Made with GOTS certified organic cotton fabric, trim and thread - the highest standard in organic. Every single step of in the creation of this sports bra, from the growing of the cotton, to its making, is ecofriendly.
Also, the plants grown for natural dyes remove more carbon from the atmosphere during their growth than is released during the dyeing process, helping to reverse the cause of global climate change.
